What a perfect world it would be to find a home designed exactly to your family’s needs. This home would include the perfect master suite for you and your husband. A large yard for your 2 young daughters and would be easy for your Mom to navigate (who needs the assistance of a wheelchair) through any floor level of the home.

Most closets are a jumbled mess of hanger and clothes scrunched together like a like too many Columbus people squeezed together at the Red, White and Boom Festival. The original home builder who thought this single hanging rod and lonely shelf would keep you and your spouse organized must have been on something!

I wonder why I decided to writhe this article about accessible closet design? Maybe it’s because:

  • (A) I’ve watched my able-bodied Father in Law ultimately need a wheelchair. Now my Mother in Law struggles with a walker. I ask myself, “Will these mobility devices be in my future?”
